Journey round my room (Voyage autour de ma chambre) is a novel by Xavier de Maistre, written between 1790 and 1794. The author wrote forty-two chapters during forty-two days of forced isolation in a room with a perimeter of thirty-six paces.
During this period of collective quarantine, Flash Art is asking artists, critics, curators, gallerists to offer a journey around their own room – to share ideas, thoughts, artworks, shadows, hidden drawers, recipes, refrigerator contents, secret projects and aspects of their humanity.

Alex Chaves “Oaks of Righteousness” Martos Gallery / New York

Chaves furthers his exploration of language with large-scale painted “E” sculptures reminiscent of the textiles and patterns in his paintings. The flattening of forms and the use of symbology continues in the gridded tennis court paintings. Chaves tends to focus on sites of intimacy and conflict, whether they be in the natural world, the battleground, or the bedroom.

Flash Art Covers

The history of the magazine told by its founders Giancarlo Politi and Helena Kontova, through anecdotes on the most iconic covers.

“Julian Schnabel was one of our most strenuous meetings. Once we were outside his studio and he was speaking to us from a truck hanging on a crane. After many shouts we finally came into his studio. We made a beautiful interview, as never before. Then he came to Milan and he reviewed almost everything with the help of an editor, in our absence. The result was a press release. From that day we kindly started to hate each other.”    – Helena Kontova

X6 Dance Space (1976–80): Liberation Notes by Philomena Epps

“Liberation Notes” at London’s Cell Project Space is the first presentation of work from the X6 Collective, a countercultural dance movement that was active in Britain between 1976 and 1980, founded by Emilyn Claid, Maedée Duprès, Fergus Early, Jacky Lansley, and Mary Prestidge. Occupying a disused tea warehouse in Butler’s Wharf, on the south bank of the River Thames, the group initiated a collaborative and supportive environment — the X6 Dance Space — to teach, share, and perform experimental new work that stood in resistance to the work being produced by mainstream companies and institutions”. ⠀⠀
